Tequila Sunrise

Grilled Grapefruit Paloma Cocktail

Rating: 5 stars 4
Here's a fired up twist on a traditional Mexican cocktail. You'll grill the grapefruit and lime to caramelize the fruit and give the juice a subtle smoky edge. Stir it up with tequila or mescal and top with club soda for a refreshing drink that's perfect all summer long.

The BEST Raspberry Margarita!

Rating: 4 stars 21
Delicious raspberry-flavored margarita. This recipe is inspired by one of the big chains that is famous for its margaritas! You'll love this! Be sure to use top-quality tequila and raspberry liqueur for maximum effect. I sometimes like to add a 'floater' of Chambord to top it all off.

Coconut Margaritas

Rating: 4 stars 21
Setting out to duplicate the coconut margaritas we had in Costa Rica, my first attempt was awful! I surfed the internet for a good recipe with little luck. I then took what I'd learned from my first nasty try and the ideas I picked up online and after about 5 or 6 attempts I came up with this. Enjoy!
